in touch with you, 53% of voters on tuesday said barack obama. and 43% said mitt romney. that 10-point deficit proved fatal to romney. romney never recovered from missteps that labeled him too rich to understand the average american. there was the $10,000 bet he offered rick perry in one of those really primary debates. that became so notorious that it was part of the narrative. >> many voters feel that mitt romney's out of touch with real americans after he tried to make the bet with rick perry for $10,000. yeah, when asked to comment, mitt said, i'm sorry, but that's all i had in my pocket at the time. chris: wow. what romney thought he could score points after president obama said the private sector was doing just fine. david lederman turned it around on romney. >> mitt romney jumped right on this and waste nod time issuing this response -- wasted no time issuing this response saying that the private sector is fine. watch what mitt had to say. >> after president obama made this statement -- >> the private sector is doing fine. >> mitt romney quickly responded. >> he said the private
won 93% of african-americans, a 71% of hispanics, more women than romney. he won 52% of voters under 34. half the independent voters. 54% of those who make over $100,000 a year. first we will hear from the president. >> i believe we can lead this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions. >> we will get to the campaign and mitt romney in a minute, but first listen to what john boehner said after the election. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. let's rise above the this function and do the right thing for our country. >> later john maynard told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person -- john boehner told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person in washington and the president knows that. the fiscal cliff looms at the end of the year. will we reach a compromise before then, charles? >> i do not think it will be a comprehensive compromise. i think they will be able to patch something toget
of the electorate. there's a difference between the middle of the electorate and independent voters. clearly, romney did make that pivot there. what i found interesting, tamron, is that republicans and we look at every survey and said look, we're winning independent voters, and that's whether it was an ohio survey or national survey, as we found out according to the exit polls. they did win the independent voters but lost the presidential election. it's important to note that winning the independent vote doesn't mean you win a presidential election. >> that makes perfect sense. i'm going to throw a wildcard at you because of our close ties to texas. this immigration comment from senator lindsey graham, that he's ready to go all in on immigration reform, the president has made his pledge to the latino community in his first term and certainly now in his second term. might we see a speeding up of this conversation? >> it certainly looks that way. of course, getting legislation done, as we've seen over the last several years, is a lot easier said than done. with john mccain, lindsey graham, people sayi
complete contempt for the republican voter. mitt romney went to ohio and told a horrible, embarrassing lie. that tells me that they feel the republican voter is someone to be led by the nose, who can be manipulated, who can be fooled. is that what mitt romney did so poorly? host: thank you. guest: i do not think they were taking the republican voters for granted. i think they failed to reach beyond the republican base, the way i saw it. what mitt romney and paul ryan were doing was to shore up the republican base. the idea in the 21st century anybody would spend any time trying to determine -- and paul ryan is a part of that -- when is a rape ok, and when is rape not ok? someone said the next time they heard a republican questioning something about rape, i want to cut their tongue out. the conversation last night, he had to say that, because he could not eliminate his base. so i guess, the long answer, my point is that they spent too much time cobbling and shoring up their base and not enough time -- cobbling -- coddling and shoring up their base and not enough time elsewhere. they had the
it and they covered it pretty well. >> jon: the exit polls thought that voters mitt romney was better equipped to handle the economy than barack obama. >> then it says something about the attitude toward the two men and they made a choice or the two parties and they made a choice. if you just go by viewers, fox mrs. msnbc, romney should have won three to one. >> jon: exit polls, some suggest reflected sort of the media theme that barack obama is a kiachbd of the little guy and middle-class and mitt romney is a rich guy that only cares about rich guys? >> i think it's clear that obama is the person who is looking to have middle-class tax cuts and mitt romney was to give tax cuts to rich people. what i would say, the reason i don't think the media played as big of a role in this. the reason barack obama won is because he ran a superior campaign. it was very targeted in these battleground states. i would be more interested in seeing exit polls from the battleground states which unfortunately we didn't have. the national exit polls don't tell us that much because what happened in the battleground
ads and they went with the positive one and here is what romney will do on day one. and i also think those attacks had a kind of voter impact on some of the lower middle class voters, and explains maybe in part ohio why romney didn't get the same number of votes, 2 million votes, 2 1/2 million votes lower than john mccain. >> i think what stands out about obama's victory to me is how ugly it was, this was identity politics on steroids telling black people republicans wanted to take away their right to vote and telling women there's war on them that seniors, that paul ryan wants to push granny off the cliff in a wheelchair. this is not the hope and change obama, this was not, there's no red state and blue state obama. he won ugly, it's divisive and if this is the template for how democrats want to win elections going forward to this-- >> and i can tell you what the reaction in the white house would be if they heard you say that, they would say get over it, grow up, this is politics, republicans got a, you know, put on their boxing gloves and get over it. >> oh, yeah. >> paul: so what?
a clear vision and mitt romney laid out a clear vision, too, and at the convention paul ryan's speech was one of the most ideological acceptance speeches in recent memory. and so it was really up to the voters to decide and they did. >> i will submit there was not much clear about the agenda the president laid out but we can have that discussion as we go forward. >> thank you. i'll tell you there was a clear agenda from glenn beck and rush limbaugh and it wasn't felicitous toward a lot of americans. thank you, michael steele, as always. and david corn. >>> coming up, why general petraeus resigned if he did as it seems the honorable thing by resigning, what's all the continuing buzz about? we have to find out what's going on in the bok ground. >>> also, more than $1 billion was spent on ad this is political season, tv ads. we're going to talk about the one ad, the one ad, that did more to sink mitt romney than all the others and how it got done. this is fascinating. it's a fascinating ad because it really worked. >>> closing down the clown show. at least part of it. if the democrats ha
of coverage. but why bother? when it's easier to throw voters for a loss, to throw romney under the bus. after, agonizing defeat he raised the bar and showed more class. >> i have just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory. his supporters and his campaign deseven congratulations. -- deseven congratulations. it wish all of them well. particularly the president, first lady and their daughters. this is a time of great challenges for america and i pray the president will be successful in guiding our nation. >> very few words of praise for romney's grace. mitt is too decent to call them all disingenuous, pretennial, obnoxious, phonie phonies. pew fortunately but fortunately.
suddenly showing up. this looks like the missing those from the romney campaign. it looks like they were ron paul voters, rick santorum voters, and a few others. now they're back. >> certainly the enthusiasm that the republicans thought they could count on did not actually materialized. whether that is because there are not excited about the candid it's, nothing anyone would have been more excited. certainly a lot of people would be a lot less excited. lou: i was as suggesting break as a substitute. i was just saying, you have not heard from them for months, and now he is back on television. the same thin with ron paul. i mean, what in the world is going on? >> proof positive that the republicans not only don't have a defense, they have nothing. lou: really? >> overstating. lou: you're also accusing me. how much of a bench to they need if you have a nominee. >> that did not have much of want. lou: they had one guy on the bench, and he was one heck of a queen of kidder. >> beat somebody with nobody. lou: bill clinton. bill clinton and chris christie. what does obama have? we will be back
. >> and to richard's point, no amount of money was going to fix mitt romney's problem with hispanic voters given where he was on immigration. no amount of money was going to fix mitt romney's problems with a lot of women voters given where he was on planned parenthood. >> that ought to be the lesson. >> those were tactical decisions that were made on issues that put him in a place that made it very hard for him to win the number of votes he was going to need. >> and that's what people who write the checks should be angry about more than anything else. >>> still ahead, former presidential candidate jon huntsman, congressman peter king and tom brokaw. "morning joe" is back in a moment. a winter wonderland doesn't just happen. it takes some doing. some coordinating. and a trip to the one place with the new ideas that help us pull it all together. from the things that hang and shine... the things that sparkle and jingle. all while saving the things that go in our wallet. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. right now, get an assortment of martha stewart living ornamen,s
voters. carlos gutierrez said that this isn't coming soon enough. >> mitt romney made some mistakes. i think mitt romney's comments is a symptom. i think the disease is the fact the far right of the party controls the primary process. >> senator lindsey graham said sunday he plans to revisit comprehensive immigration reform that was shelved two years ago. >> it's one thing to shoot yourself in the foot. just don't reload the gun. so i intend not to reload this gun when it comes to hispanic. i intend to tear this wall down and pass an immigration reform bill that's an american solution to an american problem but we have nobody to blame but ourselves when it comes to losing hispanics. >> republican pollster tells "the new york times" it is obvious until republicans do do better among nonwhite voters they will cease to become a viable national party. we're going to have to address the fact younger people tend to be less conservative on a number of hot button social issues. a former bush adviser put it more bluntly. we have become what the left was in the '70s. former bush, if another repu
the voter restrictions in pennsylvania saying, "this is how we're going to win pennsylvania for mitt romney"? >> well, no, there was a state senator who said that. >> excuse me, a state senator. >> this will allow mitt romney to win the election. now, the implication of that is that the suggestion was that there's such pervasive fraud that he wouldn't be able to win without it. i do not think that is correct. but i think that actually when you parse what he was saying i think that's what he meant. and i think that you're actually illustrating my point in a wonderful way. there's so much distrust that, and of course people aren't inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt. let's interpret what he said in the most favorable possible light because there is legitimate distrust that is rooted in the fact that these are communities that don't generally talk to each other. >> but you know, i brought you together because both of you from different perspectives have been writing about the people at the bottom of our economic ladder. is anything going to change for those people? >> you have nearly
they still exist in human form. ( laughter ). but the real problem here wasn't the voters' inexplicable decision to be less white. it was the ruthless obama smear machine. >> the obama campaign running a very aggressive early effort to characterize mitt romney as a corporate raider and his time at bain capital. >> that he was a vulture, vampire, vulture capitalist. >> jon: it was so unfair! i mean, where did that stuff come from anyway? >> there's a real difference between venture capitalism and vulture capitalism. >> pretty hard to justify rich people figuring out clever legal ways to loot a company. >> do you really believe this company wants to elect a wall street financier. >> there was a steel mill that bain swept in, took that company over. >> bain sometimes behaved in behavior where they looted a couple and left behind 1700 unemployed people. >> jon: damn you, obama! that's coming frommed in your own house. and even the right's beloved super pac designed to do to obama what obama did to romney backfired. remember aidle son, las vegas billionaire? said he's give up to $100 milli
with us. now to my point. (vo) jennifer granholm ... >>for every discouraged voter, there are ten angry ones taking action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation on your radio and on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: it is now official. president obama is the winner in florida. and patrick murphy is the winner over allen west. man! that's great move for this country. and a great move for the united states congress. good morning everybody. what do you say? happy veterans day. it is veterans day 2012. let's make sure that we mark this day as all americans should by taking a moment out to say thank you, to pay tribute to and salute our veterans of all american wars and thank them for the job that they've done and make sure that their years of post-military service are appreciated and people and their families are well ta
if he wins among independents. mitt romney won independents by 10 points in ohio, lost the state. they just-- >> schieffer: barack obama also won white working clalsz voters in ohio, which he didn't do very well with in other places. >> what he did in ohio was did well enough with white work clalsz voters and the african american turnout in ohio was 11% in 2008. it was 15% in this election. why did that happen? the strategists i talked to sort of were like, well, of course, barack obama is going to do well with african americans. if you look at african america african americans -- two things you talk to strategists who know the african american community, there was an effort by republicans in states from pennsylvania, florida, ohio, to shrink the amount of days and ways in which african americans could vote. >> schieffer: you know, to me, most telling statistic in this whole race, dee dee, is when i read and learned from those exit polls that barack obama had won the cuban vote in florida. >> right. in florida. and the hispanic vote made up the entire marge nin florida, ended up
stream. the positions of governor romney that he took in the primary on immigration reform. the positions that he took on women's health issues and contraception and planned parenthood drove large numbers of voters away from them, and then on economic, central to this election. they had a theory that frankly was not a popular theory in the country which is that you know, if we go back to tax cuts for the wealthy and deregulation that would profit everyone, and then for romney himself, there were specific things that he did. i think that the decision in the final week to try and litigate the auto bailout again, in ohio, had a tremendously negative impact there, and perhaps beyond ohio. so, you know, in the final analysis, there are a lot of factors here, but in the short-term, that was a very bad decision, in my view. >> people are looking to what happened and saying, look, the senate remains with democrat house with republicans. barack obama re-elected. not much change. how can we expect the washington machine, many consider fractured if not paralyzed to get things done? the speaker boehn
't romney 'em base sb-1070? that also alienated hispanic voters. >> i wouldn't be surprised, 2013, comprehensive immigration reform is signed into law by the president of the united states. lindsey graham is at the signing ceremony, chuck schumer obviously is there -- >> donna brazile. i have to say one thing. 28 hispanics will be in congress this coming term, including another hispanic of the united states senate. that's something to celebrate. >> thanks very much. >>> graphic and disturbing images of civil war atrocities raising new questions about syria's forces. arwa dame season on the scene for us. urnlgtsdz humans -- sometimes life trips us up. and sometimes, we trip ourselves up, but that's okay. at liberty mutual insurance we can "untrip" you as you go through your life with personalized policies and discounts when you need them most. just call... and speak with a licensed representative about saving on your policy when you get married, move into a new house... [crash!] or add a car to your policy. don't forget to ask about saving up to 10% when you combine your auto and h
? >> caller: after the election, kind of blame it on the voters. they're so stupid, misinformed they don't get it. they didn't really get mitt romney and if they were just more in folder but that's not what they did. after the election, they said they were lays, they are these moochers, they're hangers on. they want all this free stuff from the government. >> stephanie: lashes out at the voters you get the government you deserve. it pains me to say this, you say that's the box the gop noise machine built for itself. if that's true, why did obama just win his second electoral land slide in four years? all those voters are part of the problem. >> caller: right. >> stephanie: blah blah blah. i mean, fascinating what's going to happen now right? >> caller: yeah, and this is, we talked about it, but for months and months, i've been asking what are these people going to do on election night because romney ain't going to oh win and so if they just keep feeding this frenzy about, you know, all you had to do was read the conservative media the weeks before the campaign, you know, obama's coalition was
to see you 13 points immediately. romney never made any attempt to appeal to african-americans at all, and i know the black vote is always very democratic but he made no attempt at all for 13% of voters. it's hard to win a game to 50 when you start out with a disvance. >> steve, in light of what perry just said, in addition to that nativism, there's something else republicans will have to part with because of this election, but he's not stepping down without a fight. let's take a listen. >> there's about 78 to 81 members of the democratic party who are members of the communist party. communist, progressive, marxist, socialist, statist, that's another term that's been used. get the hell out of the united states of america. >> maybe stalin prevailed. it looks like allen west has lost his race yet he hasn't agreed to concede yet but it's not looking good right now. here is my question, without allen west, who is going to keep the spirit of joe mccarthy alive in the senate? >> first of all, allen west may lose this and may concede and probably will but i don't think he's going away. i hav
